Biden Official in Trouble After Payment Comes to Light

The aftermath of the Trump-Clinton 2016 election is being brought to the forefront in hearings before the House Financial Services Committee.

Finances and use of campaign funds by Hillary Clinton’s failed run for the presidency in 2016 are under scrutiny by Congress. 

Gary Gensler, currently serving as Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, found himself on the hot seat when asked under oath by Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) whether Gensler had any part in the payment for the infamous and discredited anti-Trump dossier provided to the Clinton campaign by the former British spy Christopher Steele. 

When pressed for a yes or no answer and reminded that he was under oath, Gensler stated the payment was something he was unaware of. 

Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) became the third Florida legislator to endorse Donald Trump’s 2024 run for the White House. 

During the 2016 Clinton campaign, Gensler served as the chief financial officer of her campaign and should know about any payments made by the campaign. 

The Democratic National Committee and the Clinton Campaign were both heavily fined by the Federal Election Committee for a $ 1 million payment to be made to Fusion GPS as “opposition research” for the discredited dossier. The dossier contained unfounded and derogatory information on Donald Trump and his alleged Russian connections, according to federal investigations. 

The Federal Election Committee requires candidates and groups to disclose how campaign money is dispersed. Any expense over $200 must be explained as to the purpose of that expense.

The Clinton Campaign didn’t properly disclose the dossier expense as opposition research and tried to disguise it as legal expenses and consulting costs.

The former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, who was also Trump’s former media company head after leaving the House, recalls the 2017 testimony of John Podesta, who said Gensler was the one who wrote the check to Fusion GPS.
